Ty Lawson's pregnant girlfriend told investigators the Denver Nuggets guard pushed her during a fight after she heard him on the phone with another woman. Both Lawson and Ashley Pettiford were arrested following Saturday's fight and held over the weekend because of the domestic violence allegations. According to a sheriff's report, Pettiford said Lawson grabbed both of her arms and pushed her back as she tried to pack her clothes to leave. Lawson allegedly admitted to pushing her out of the way but said it wasn't a "real push." USA Today Sports

Lawson's new contract kicks in next season, taking him from a $2 million base salary to more than $10 million. But what hasn't kicked in is added pressure, Lawson said. "Last year I didn't feel too much pressure. Even though it wasn't my contract year, people already knew what I signed my contract for," Lawson said. "They were already tweeting stuff about it and stuff like that. I'm just going to work hard. My game is going to elevate this year from all of the hard work I'm putting in. I don't feel pressure at all." Denver Post

The sighs of relief that the Nuggets' front office and head coach have been taken care of aren't confined to just team president Josh Kroenke. Count Ty Lawson among the relieved. "Having a GM, a coach, knowing what we're doing going forward takes a lot of the stress off of everybody around the organization and the players," Lawson said Thursday during a phone interview.

The beauty of social media is the ability to reach anyone anywhere in the world. Ty Lawson is taking advantage of that as he takes a lead role in "recruiting" teammate Andre Iguodala to stay with the Nuggets. Lawson's midday tweet to Iguodala on Wednesday was in good fun, but continued to underscore a point he has been trying to make for months. "Umm @andre better stay in Denver or I'm a have my ppl run up on him and handle that #str8likedat #yougotnochoice," Lawson wrote on Twitter. Denver Post

Nuggets guard Ty Lawson left the Pepsi Center on Wednesday afternoon ready to take the team charter to Oakland, Calif., for Game 6 against Golden State. He was not in any way worried about retaliation. Warriors coach Mark Jackson accused the Nuggets of dirty play in Denver's Game 5 victory. Jackson specifically cited a play by Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried against Stephen Curry, but also mentioned the Nuggets' overall harassing of his star, whom Lawson guarded most of the game. "If they look at the tape, they did the same thing. The series just evened out," Lawson said Wednesday. "I don't think they are going to retaliate." Denver Post
